Captains of the Hunt
The Captains of the Hunt (COTH) play an integral role in the management of the Métis harvest. One COTH is assigned to each of the MNO Regions within Ontario and is mandated by the MNO to implement the MNO Harvest Policy.

They help manage the MNO harvest, support the implementation of the MNO-MNRF Interim Harvesting Agreement, and determine the appropriate management of the harvest in their respective Regions. The COTH also act as liaisons between Harvesters and the MNO in situations where charges have been filed.
